Good morning, it's 58° presently, partly sunny at 8 AM and heading toward a high of 76.°  We're due to have rain again tomorrow, so it seems a repeat of the last three years. This building is having a Memorial Day Potluck; VFW and The American Legion are having services at the Veterans Cemeteries and Veterans Memorial Park. The city has the usual events, sales, and potlucks planned.

It is Memorial Day here in the USA 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸 Rest In Peace, ALL of the Vets who fought for our freedom and died doing so so can we enjoy a free country today ‼️ We would normally go to all the cemeteries where our loved ones are intoured but it is a wet and chilly day out. 

PATRICIA, I, too, remember being awakened by my father who most generally had some little joke ready to play on me before being told it was time to be "bright eyed and bushy tailed"!  I hope you enjoyed the picnic I your building today. 

AMY, I, too, hope the frost did not ruin any of your crops!  We have leftovers in the fridge that need to be eaten up, so no major cooking today. We will have to prepare our asparagus....yummm, cannot wait to have it!  Thank you for the nice Memorial Day greeting. 

JANE, I can't wait to read about your day.

SHIRLEY, always loved looking a5 the beautiful blue water in the pool.  Glad you enjoyed breakfast with the family.

Enjoy the holiday every one.

I was going through the BobVilla.com internet site for some gardening advice when I saw a thread for nine towns that will pay you to live there. So I took a look and found this..".Do you dream of living in Alaska? If you do, you could earn $1,000 a year just for living there. The state of Alaska maintains a Permanent Reserve Fund that pays dividends to residents who have lived in the state for at least one calendar year and plan to remain there indefinitely. So, pack your thermals and head out for a new life of adventure."

Unfortunately, this isn't true. When oil was discovered in the state many, many years ago, the state legislators decided to form an estimated dividend program for state residents based on the current year's oil lease earnings. People started moving in, homeless and broke, yet demanding their share of the dividends.

So, the state made it a provision to live in the state for one calendar year before becoming eligible. And you need to re-apply yearly. Now the oil boom is stuttering; oil is becoming scarce just like Texas and other oil states, so the dividend is on its way out.

Hello Everyfriend!  The day started just as I said it would and since then, we've had one more long walk and two short ones.  The rain stopped and the temps got into the low 70s and the sun shone.  I started out on the first walk with a tee shirt, a sweater and a jacket on.  On the second walk, I shed the jacket and went with just the tee shirt and the sweater.  By the time we took our last walk, the sweater was gone.  It's a good thing it got dark because I don't know what I'd have done if it got any warmer!

I cooked some broccoli florets in the Air Fryer to go with the dinners that I made last night.  Boy was it every good!  I think this is the first holiday that I haven't heard from even one of my kids.  I hope that means they were having such a good holiday they just didn't think of anything outside of their immediate family.  Frankie called to ask if I'd mind if she joined a friend for a holiday cookout.  I told her to go and have a ball.  She answered that she loves me!

The big thing I did today was retype my kitchen freezer inventory.  It had so many additions and scratchoffs that I couldn't tell what I had and what was gone any more.  That involved actually looking at the stuff in the freezer and making sure what was there. 

Now I'm ready for the haystack!  The zzzzs are ganging up on me and hollering for me to join them.  Mickie's been for her last outie and I'm ready!  I wish you all a peaceful night's sleep and a happy tomorrow.  And may God bless us, every one!
